"Falcon Hot" Wing Challenge
sponsored by The Hot Sauce Co.
The "Falcon hot" wing challenge
Do you like spicy and think you have what it takes to beat the heat???
We are looking for up to 10 BRAVE participants who think they can handle the heat for a chance to win cash and prizes in our Demo Day "Falcon Hot" Wing Challenge.
We have partnered with Jesse Long from The Hot Sauce Co. a Fanshawe College grad and celebrated participant in our 2020 leapIN Business Accelerator, to make this challenge possible. Jesse will be bringing you a range of locally produced, vegan, and gluten-free hot sauce flavours that are guaranteed to make you sweat.
Contestants will go head-to-head for 5 heated rounds that will gradually increase in intensity.
Each round will consist of 2 to 3 chicken wings or cauliflower bites (you choose when you register).
The participant to beat the heat and make it the farthest will win a large prize pack and cash (we will also be smaller prize packs and cash for our second and third-place participants).
Now of course there can only be one Hot Wing Challenge Champion so, if multiple participants still remain after five rounds, an additional five rounds will be added with extra heat and intensity.
